MORNINGTON Peninsula councillor and Frankston policewoman Julia Morris and her swimming partner Daniel Burton have so far raised $5055 of a $10,000 goal to assist in treating police PTSD and mental health disorders.

The pair swam the 10 kilometres from Mornington to Frankston, Wednesday 8 January – three-times the length of their longest swim to date.

Sergeant Burton and Senior Constable Morris are both keen triathletes, and have been swimming together for three years, sharing a passion for the Frankston and Mornington coastline.

Their swim was inspired by Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton’s Head to Head walk.
